    Re: No Suspension for Chara

    Instigating is a very simple cut an dry rule. It's what Gaustad did last night to start the whole thing. Up by 3 goals with seconds left on the clock with the puck leaving the zone. All he had to do was circle back to his goalie to celebrate a well deserved win. This guy is a proven s*um bag and if the B's could be fortunate enough to be up in game 6 or 7 -- Gaustad should be watching the final hand shake from a hospital emergency room. An added bonus would be if Kaleta was right next to him.

    GUTLESS SABRES!!!!

    Watching Gustad slashing Chara then 3 sabres jump him show me that the sabres are totally spineless...a real man doesn't need other guys to help fight someone unless that man is a Coward....if you are to pick a fight with someone be man enough to stand up to him by your self .

    So let me get this straight, the rule says:
    Rule 47.22, which states that “the suspension shall be served unless, upon review of the incident, the Director of Hockey Operations, at his discretion, deems the incident is not related to the score, previous incidents in the game or prior games, retaliatory in nature, ‘message sending,’ etc.’’

    The NHL reviews it and does NOT suspend Chara.  In a certain sense the on-ice call is overturned by the review.  But then they DO NOT "overturn" the missed call - the slash - and suspend the player, Gasbag for being the actual instigator?  So then we have a situation where the instigator is not penalized.

    The whole point of the rule is to avoid such incidents.  So the point of the suspension is to prevent such incidents.

    So now you have such an incident.  One player is deemed the instigator at gametime.  The review overturns that.  But wait a second, if that is the case, SOMEONE ELSE must be the instigator.  They have the review, but they don't suspend whoever it was?  The NHL "justice system" is just a total joke.

    An analogy, if there is a crime and you have it on tape and there are 2 people involved and the one arrested at the time wasn't the person that committed the crime they don't say, 'oops we made a mistake, you get out of jail free, and we can't arrest the actual criminal because we made a mistake the first time.'  That's just idiotic.
